The 2021 Competition

About 2021

For the health and safety of all of our competitors and judges, the 2021 World Mining Competition will be held in an entirely online format for delegates. Don't worry, this year's competition will still include all of the things that make WMC the largest multi-disciplinary mining undergraduate case competition in Canada.

We know that the COVID-19 Pandemic has taken a financial toll on many, which is why we are waving the registration fee for all delegates.

Things might look a little bit different this year, but our team is working hard to make sure the 2021 competition challenges the brightest young minds in the mining industry, and also lets us have some fun in the process.

Opening and Closing Ceremonies

The opening and closing ceremonies will feature speeches from our executive as well as mining industry leaders. Plus, teams will have an opportunity to become involved and earn prizes.

Academic Challenge

Put your critical thinking and problem solving skills to the test during the academic challenge. Teams will be presented with a question or problem and must work together to provide a solution under a time constraint.

Games Night

Take a break from working on the case resolution and compete with the other teams in a series of games to win a prize.


Show off your knowledge while presenting your solution to industry leaders that will judge each team. The top teams will compete in the final presentations round where one team will be crowned the winner of the 2020 World Mining Competition.
